Ike Clanton was at the OK Corral. However, all reports both historically and in the local newspaper, The Tombstone Epitaph, indicate he was unarmed and did not take part in the shootout. Ike was killed by Detective Jonas V. Brighton in Springerville, Arizona Territory, in 1887.

During the gunfight when Wyatt asks Virgil to cover him, he runs around the back of the wall. As he peeks around the wall he is shot at and the wall is hit. You then see the wires and charge used to create the effect fall and dangle from the wall.

Quotes
Wyatt Earp: [to Billy Clanton] You think you're pretty tough, don't ya, son? I never knew a gunslinger yet so tough he lived to celebrate his 35th birthday. I learned one rule about gunslingers. There's always a man faster on the draw than you are, and the more you use a gun, the sooner you're gonna run into that man.

Wyatt Earp: All gunfighters are lonely. They live in fear. They die without a dime, a woman or a friend.

Dr. John 'Doc' Holliday: If I'm going to die, atr least let me die with the only friend I've ever had!
